Cottage in Porthmadog, Wales - Peaceful Location, 5 Minute Walk To The Beach
Y Don is a quaint three bed cottage that provides everything for the perfect self catering holiday. It is available for short breaks and weekly lets throughout the year. Situated on the road leading down to the beautiful Black Rock Sands, where you can build sandcastles, swim, take your watercraft or just walk along the beautiful long stretch of golden sands. Inside there is a wood burning stove to snuggle around during those winter nights, after relaxing in the Hot Tub, with Movies to download, games, magazines and local information to hand. You can't help but relax and enjoy your time at Y Don. Morfa Bychan is located to the east of the popular Llyn Peninsular and adjacent west of the Snowdonia National Park. This pretty village has retained its charm with a extensively stocked Spar Shop, Chip Shop, Pub and Porthmadog Golf Club. It then backs on to the beautiful Black Rock Sands. An ideal base for exploring both the mountain and coastal attractions of North Wales.

About the Owner
We are Martin and Wendy Edwards. We love Morfa Bychan, the Surrounding area and our cottage, which we bought back at the end of 2010 to renovate and completely refurbish, this previously unloved and much neglected cottage back to life.
Our 11 year old son is also very passionate about holidaying here, he can use his bycyle and scooter and loves the freedom the area provides.
Our 18 year has gone off to Uni now, but made many friends on his holidays here in the past.
We have a Sprocker dog, who I think loves Black Rock Sands more than we do, she seems to be able to smell it once we cross the Cob.
It is so peaceful, yet with some much to see and do too.
It really is our little heaven away from all the hustle and bustle of life.
We really do hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Spent a superb weekend here for my best friend's 60th surprise birthday weekend. Stunning cottage with lovely decor, top quality furniture and fittings but home from home ethos. Great location with easy access to beautiful beaches and scenic walking country. The icing on the cake - the lovely hot tub in the private patio to chill out and watch the stars. A credit to the owners- thank you
Just spent fantastic week here . accommodation was excellent grandchildren loved the summer house and hot tub to relax in after days of outdoor activities - climbing snowdon ,mountain biking and zip wiring !!! Would definitely recommend the property .
Another Stunning week at Y Don
We were again blessed with some beautiful weather, topped off by staying at the stunning Y Don.
Very well appointed and the hot tub just makes your stay perfect - you really couldn't ask for more on holiday!
We have already booked for 2017 - it really is that good.
everything we needed for our weekend.The games room was taken over by our menfolk to watch sport(a bit too comfortable for them they didnt want too leave) We hope to return very soon.If you are looking for somewhere close to the beach with all facilities(hottub, log fire, comfortable beds and spotless this is the place for you.
Everything you need in wonderful location
We had a lovely relaxing stay in Y Don which was most welcome after all the long walks each day. To come back and relax in front of the log burner or chill out in the hot tub was perfect. Very well equipped and lovely comfy bed! We will be back.
Close to wonderful beach,mountain walks and golf course
Great location to visit the best of north wales
Keep returning to this wonderful cottage
From the Owner
“We just loved the location. The proximity to the beach and just so peaceful in the cottage. Yet if you want it there is plenty to see and do around the area. The Spar shop and Chip Shop around the corner, just so convenient.”
